Do Your Dog’s Treats Contain These Low-Quality Ingredients?
Posted on 02/27/2018 by Jason Lustig

https://www.preenpets.com/dogs-treats-contain-low-quality-ingredients/?utm_source=Preen+Pets&utm_campaign=05c908f4e9-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_02_12&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_ba2e54a2eb-05c908f4e9-20089065

Dog treats have come a long way over the years. We used to keep a box of those dry, bone-shaped biscuits in the cupboard to give to Fido every once and awhile. Today, trainers and dog owners agree that healthy and nutritious treats are an essential training tool that provides positive reinforcement for pups.
Don’t Be Fooled By Cheap Ingredients in Nice Packaging

Unfortunately, the extremely profitable pet industry features several brands oversaturating the market with cheap treats made with low-quality and potentially harmful ingredients. You can’t trust the brand packaging itself, as pet food companies use tricks to make their food appear better than it is. Their pretty packaging can be misleading, but the ingredient list offers a more truthful look at what’s actually in your dog’s food. Pick up any dog treat product at the store, and you will see a long list of ingredients– many of them you can’t even pronounce, let alone understand.

The Worst Ingredients in Dog Treats and Dog Food

Butylated Hydroxyanisole or BHA
Butylated Hydroxytoluene or BHT
Ethoxyquin
Food dyes including Blue 2, Red 40, Yellow 5, Yellow 6, and 4-MIE
Propylene Glycol or PG
Rendered fat
Corn and wheat gluten
Meat and grain meals and by-products

BHA and BHT are synthetic antioxidants that are possible carcinogens that may also interfere with hormone function. Long-term exposure to high doses of BHT is proven to be toxic in mice and rats. It can also cause liver, thyroid and kidney problems and can hurt lung function and blood coagulation.

Ethoxyquin is a fat preservative that is also used as a pesticide as well as in the process of making rubber (yuck!). Studies have found that it can cause liver damage, as well. Synthetic food dyes are entirely unnecessary and only contribute to the visual appeal of a product for humans– your dog couldn’t care less! They link to cancer, allergies, and hyperactivity. Propylene Glycol is a controversial form of mineral oil that may cause allergic reactions as well as skin, liver and kidney damage.

Corn and wheat gluten are both ingredients used as meat substitutes that are less nutritionally complete than real meat proteins. Manufacturers add them to dog foods and treat to make their products seem better than they are. Other ingredients including If you’re feeding your dogs products containing these ingredients, they may not be getting the nutrition they need. Furthermore, many dogs are gluten intolerant and can suffer from severe inflammation and allergic reactions when consumed.

Of all the ingredients listed above, rendered fat, and meat/grain meals or by-products probably sound the most familiar. The problem is there are little to no regulations when it comes to disclosing from which animals pet food manufacturers are sourcing their “rendered fat,” “meals,” and “by-products.” You may be feeding your beloved pets the remains of diseased cattle, tumor-ridden chickens, roadkill, zoo animals, and even euthanized dogs and cats from veterinarians and shelters. Rendered fat is also a source of harmful microorganisms, toxins, and can facilitate the growth of harmful bacteria and mold.
Other Bad Ingredients to Look Out For

Other ingredients to look out for include: white flour, monosodium glutamate (MSG), corn syrup, farmed salmon, xylitol, sugar alcohols, sodium nitrate, soy, sodium tripolyphosphate (STPP), salt, vegetable oil, cellulose, brewers rice, corn, sodium hexametaphosphate, animal digest, pea protein, and artificial flavor.

RedBarn Rocks!


I don’t know how many of you have dogs, or what treats you give them, if you have them. Our animals are very large, so of course, I like to get them treats that are large. Bully sticks, to get large ones, are kind of expensive. They are supposed to last a really long time, but 225 pounds can do away with one in no time.

A couple of years ago, we went, around this time of year, down to the local pet supply store. They had a two pack of these things redbarn twisters or some such name. They are like 20-22″ long. Perfect. Special Sale Price $8.99. Cool, I could afford that.

Later, when I went to track some down to order, they are like between $9-$13 each. And I have to have 2 of everything, and they last no time.

Anyway, recently I had ordered a bunch when I found them on special. There was a little issue with a couple of them. Not a real big issue, but something that I wanted the company to be aware of, so that they could keep an eye out on it.

The lady that assisted me, Sue Jonsson, after reading my email, was totally wonderful! She sent me out another bunch, in fact a few more than I had ordered for that particular order. It was like early Christmas for my dogs, they were ecstatic! I gave each of them a whole one. Yes, I am so chintzy that I cut them in half so that I can actually afford to give them both a treat.

Not too many companies out there that do that sort of thing anymore. It has been a long time since I have seen a company that cares as much as RedBarn.

Pawstruck.com

Hi yall!
Ya know, I rarely post anything light-hearted, rarely anythign without the doom and gloom of what is going to kill us all (Fukushima) I even have a blog called DeKalb County Sux, where I show total discontent with the way the County is run.
Never anything about how wonderful something or someone is.
Today, I felt the need to post just that thing, something nice.

So, I am going to tell you how wonderful Pawstruck.com is. I was sad that I was going to have to move on to order the treat that my four-legged babies love the most. I won’t give a lot of details cause I was offered something I could not refuse to stay with them. I mean really, some companies, apparently, want to keep you as a customer enough to bend over backwards for you, to show how much they appreciate you. Pawstruck.com did that for me. Little ole me!

I want everyone who has four-legged babies to order at least one time from there. You won’t be sorry. I know, that I have yet to regret placing an order with them. They have great prices, and for once, a company really cares when you thank them for all they have done…
So, to show my appreciation to them, and to my friends here, that read my blogs, I wanted to pass them on to you. Seriously, I have not seen a company care this much for years.
Give them a try, you won’t be sorry!

Sincerely
nootkabear
